When my aunt (the family genealogist) heard I took early retirement from HP she nominated me to chair the committee creating a book about the descendents of my great-great-great-grandparents, Sarah Tarvin and Jason Tribby. The book is being prepared under the auspices of the Tarvin Family Association. Sarah was the 11th of 13 children born to the Rev. George Tarvin and Sarah Craycraft, so our part of the family is known as "line 11." Read more about the Tarvin Family Association and their books at http://www.tarvinfamily.org/
Sarah Tarvin and Jason Tribby were married on July 16, 1807, in Fleming County, Kentucky. Over the next 25 years they had a total of 15 children. The families of at least four of these children (including my ancestors) moved to Indiana in the 1850s and 1860s.
I'd like to involve as many relatives as possible in the creation of this book. This is an opportunity to ensure we accurately record data about our ancestors. Any interesting stories will make dry statistics come alive.
If you know anyone who can trace their lineage back to a Tribby (or Borders, Carnahan, Phillips, Mers, Myers, or Steele) living in Kentucky or Indiana 150 years ago, have them contact me.
